WHEW!/others

NOW......................................THEN

This victory for intelligence represents the beginning of a new era in the direction of my art. Whereas most work I've made in the last 8 years has reflected frustrations I've felt towards my country and its actions, now the doorway is open to make triumphant, hopeful images instead. I am excited for the world. What a relief.

Two other artists came to my attention during the promotion of my own work, both extremely different, but of the same vein, using actual money to depict the President. Perhaps a new genre has been birthed. History being made...
